Before I went in search of supplies for another pumpkin project, I drew a crude pumpkin on plywood using an old copper pipe from the basement as a guide (the stem), then Scott cut out the pattern, and then the scrap wood against the pattern and basically everything else to make the pumpkin.
The kids watched as Daddy assembled things.
And lent helping hands when they could.
Here is the naked pumpkin. I thought it looked cool then, but I wanted a dark finish.
So I applied Danish Oil to the pumpkin and now it's gorgeous!
I love it when a plan comes together.
